How often should lifting equipment be inspected?

Lifting equipment testing is a HSE requirement. You should have a LOLER lifting equipment inspection at least once every 12 months, and every 6 months for any equipment used to lift people, plus for certain lifting accessories.

Other non-lifting workplace equipment should have a PUWER inspection at least once every 12 months, depending on the nature of its use and risk.

What is LOLER?

The abbreviation LOLER stands for Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations.

As an employer, it places duties and responsibility on you and your staff who operate, own or have control over lifting equipment.

To comply with LOLER, your business must undertake a lifting equipment inspection and get certifications to confirm your equipment is maintained correctly and meets the necessary safety requirements.

Please also see the PUWER information below as this often is also applicable in a lifting environment.

What is PUWER?

The abbreviation PUWER stands for Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations. As an employer, it is you and your staff’s responsibility to ensure your workplace equipment, whether owned by you or not, is in good working order and is safe for use by your employees or contractors.

Being PUWER compliant ensures the correct maintenance and certification is applied to the working equipment.

If you are working with lifting equipment, it is likely that you will need both PUWER and LOLER compliance certifications.
